Ako Bicol Rep. wants Bangsamoro plebiscite scheduled soon

MANILA--Ako Bicol party-list Rep. Rodel Batocabe said Congress should work double time to ensure that plebiscite can be scheduled immediately.

“I am hoping that we will be able to immediately pass the BBL so that it will be immediately submitted for plebiscite. Otherwise, any further delay might be costly to the peace process,” Batocabe pointed out.

On Monday, the House of Representatives adopted a resolution creating an ad hoc committee with 75 members to review, evaluate and propose legislation relative to the comprehensive agreement on the Bangsamoro.

Meanwhile, Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. urged his colleagues in Congress to leave politics behind when they start debating the bill, saying any political bickering should be set aside to achieve lasting and genuine peace in Mindanao.

“It should not be partisan to ensure healthy discussions aimed at ending the rebellion of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front,” said Belmonte saying that Mindanao had suffered a lot of hostilities.

However, the Speaker earlier admitted that Congress may not be able to immediately pass the bill so that plebiscite can be held by December. (PNA) LGI/SFM
